August 2022 Performance

The slow steady grind down continues with one step up and two steps down. I have not made any changes to my portfolio and will wait out this storm. There is so much bearishness in this market, almost seems like the market should rally hard. Remember that the market is looking out 6 to 9 months into the future so and will bottom when there is maximum gloom and doom.


I’ve significant slowed down the put selling as the premiums has evaporated with the recent rally. Hopefully with the continuation of the decline, the premiums will fatten up a bit. In any case, I am going to take it easy with the put selling and not get too greedy. When you sell puts, you are always worrying about a black swan event.


Another quiet and boring month with not much to report.
